The Russ, because it is awesome.

The Baneblade, because it is the Guard personified.

storm troopers and veterans.

especially veterans. deepstrike 5 of these guys, and you're looking at 3 meltas and a plasma pistol into your tank. boom. for 85 points. rock on.

stormtroopers, especially the kasrkin models look awesome.

Storm Troopers and Hellhounds myself...

Storm Troopers. I love these guys. The 'Glory Boys' are awesome. Elite Training and Carapace Armour, can't be asking for much better in the Guard.

Hellhounds are just nasty tanks.

The Russ because it is the absolute coolest tank in the entire game.

The Hellhound because flaming death it just what the doctor ordered...

The Demolisher. Without doubt the best purchase I have ever made for my guard army. Maybe it's luck, but this thing always takes out unholy amounts of enemy each game.

Command Squad w/ Advisors w/ Support. I always take a Commissar in my Command Squad, and I always take a Fire Support Squad. The former is highly survivable at 3 wounds and can make a CC phase a lot more difficult for the opponent. The latter has 2 autocannons and 1 heavy bolter. This combo is better against light vehicles, and it took only one game for my friend ork player to realize that "speed freaks just isn't going to work". (I massacred him).

The Leman Russ! The Marines worst nightmare!
It is only "one" model.
It has weapons to take on anything.
It has the range to use those weapons.
It has great armor.
It has barrage (no "to hit" roll, only scatter ^^)
It looks cool
..........I could go on forever
OPEN FIRE, ALL GUNS!
